ALL WEAPONS MUST BE BROUGHT TO OPS TO BE PEACE BONDED.
Real Weapons: No real weapons will be allowed at the convention, or on hotel property. No exceptions, not even with a Conceal Carry License. Leave your guns at home, any swords, knives, or any other weapons purchased in the Dealers Room will have to be immediately put in your hotel room or car.
Realistic Looking Weapons: No realistically colored weapons or ammo will be allowed.
No Weapon may shoot any projectile of any kind: airsoft, paintballs, nerf, etc. It must have all internal workings removed and be tipped orange (and preferably capped solid).
No metal guns, knives, swords, or other weapons. No matter how they are painted, are allowed. A small amount of metal accenting, or metal colored accenting, is allowed – think less than 10% of the prop. No metal blades of any kind are allowed.
The Convention and Hotel staff must be able to ascertain that any weapon is clearly a prop, and completely non-functional as casual inspection at a distance of around 50 feet. Unrealistically shaped guns can be painted black or other realistic colors.
If your prop or weapon does not fit with in these rules it must remain in your car or room for the entire weekend.
We try to cycle out guests from far away lands as much as possible, so that our attendees can check out a wide variety of authors, artists and bands that they might not otherwise get to experience. With that in mind, while some of our local guests do return, many of our "out of state" guests may move on to other skies.
We can certainly consider bringing them! Contact us to let us know. Providing us with some contact information, if you have it, would be appreciated!
We are always looking for volunteers! Please use our Contact Form and let us know you're interested and we'll send you information as soon as we can provide it.
Because Anomaly Con is an annual event with specific, widely-publicized dates, we do not offer refunds for any reason save cancellation of the event on our part (not yours). We reserve the right to cancel events based on our discretion. Passes purchased in advance can be transferred to other parties, but only if the purchasing party notifies Anomaly Con before the close of preregistration.
If you're unable to attend Anomaly Con but purchased a T-shirt in advance, you can arrange to pick it up at the following year's convention. To do so, you must contact us immediately after Anomaly Con—within two (2) days—and again at least six (6) weeks prior to the following year's convention to ensure correct processing. T-shirts not arranged to be picked up the following year are considered forfeit.
By registering online or at the door for Anomaly Con, you agree to follow the code of conduct guidelines for that event. If you are removed from the convention at any time for failing to follow codes of conduct or violating our weapons policy, your registration fee will not be refunded.
We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. We'll update this page, and, if we do, it's your responsibility to be aware of the updated policy when purchasing passes.
